Kitchen Trends for the Future
Are you constructing a brand new house? Would you like to renovate parts of your house to keep in tune with the trends? Does your budget only allow you to remodel a few key aspects of your house? Irrespective of the situation you are in, before diving in and breaking the wall, it’s best to first take a look at what’s hot and trending in kitchen designs.
Numerous shades of gray
Well, it seems that the color ‘gray’ is liked by many for various reasons. It seems to work wonderfully well for kitchen cabinets, too. Earlier, the first neutral color that people would pick was white. But now, gray seems to be the go-to-color for kitchen themes and designs. Also, cabinets that come with a metallic finish are catching on fast. So, if you think you can play around with the many shades of gray in your kitchen, it should be your first choice.
The not-so-granite countertops
Granite, no doubt, has been the most obvious choice for kitchen countertops. And in all likelihood, it would continue to be that way for a while. Most people now want to give marble a shot too. However, the latest in trend is the all-new oil-rubbed bronze finish and other laminates that you can use for faucets and other hardware in your kitchen. They add the much needed class to your kitchen. Also, this option and not too expensive, and should you ever wish to change it, you can do so without too much thought.
Steel or no-steel?
Steel sinks are the safest bet and most reliable ones too. However, if the rest of your kitchen has been decked with bronze, stainless steel is hardly the sink to go with. You can try a warm color that will harmonize the whole setting. Otherwise, a plain, white one will do nicely too. It’s all about playing with shades and colors to create the setting you want. For all those who want to have the best cooking experience, having a great kitchen is a must. These small, but thoughtful choices will ensure that you have the best.
Keep it open
After experimenting for years with closed and open kitchens, the ones with open floor plans have emerged as clear winners. Open kitchens are now in trend, and it looks like they are here to stay. If you’re looking to go with an open kitchen, you can choose a wooden flooring if that matches with the rest of the house. While the decor need not be a perfect match between your kitchen and the adjoining room, it’s best to pick colors that will harmonize the entire setting.
Simple is in style
Some of us like color and so, make our kitchen cabinets as colorful as possible. However, since white seems to be in trend, it’s worth a shot to put together a series of white cabinets instead of a mixture of colors. You’ll be left with a simple, neat and clean look for your kitchen.
